Apr 19th 2011 2:26PM Abbadon, you reminded me of this classic comment on WowHead (see http://www.wowhead.com/quest=8743/bang-a-gong#comments): "We often see in these large online games bitter-sweet victories and forgettable events; while it is true that the first time you sever the head of VanCleef you feel a surge of pride, it is sullied by the knowledge of the thousands that came before you and those who will soon follow.
Actual history has many more memorable events because they are truly that, history. While the actions are repeatable, none are equal to that original moment in any way, but merely act as homage to that unique moment. This however is one of those true moments of game history, set in a world where history is usually repeatable.
To most they only knew of it second-hand, a friend of a friend hearing something about a hasty Black Wing Lair run; while to others it was a frenzied pace of night-after-night raids and countless hours of grinding to help form this Champion, to help herald in this event.
You may still be able to grasp at shadows of what this once was, and follow the path of those who did it before you, but in this rarest of quests there are none on par with the champions who broke the seal of Ahn’Qiraj to face the would-be god C’Thun, and quest beside us a Scarab Lord.
They, and only they, opened the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj, and ended the Great War Effort."
